What you’ll need:Eye primer
A light and dark eyeshadow colour but in the same shade family
A darker hued shade of eyeshadow
Eyeshadow and blending brush
Prep your eyes with a primer like Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion for its easy-to-use wand applicator. Make sure to use it over your entire eyelid and wait for it to dry completely before moving onto the next step.
Next, apply the nude eyeshadow to your eyelids, making sure the colour almost disappears onto your skin. This shade will act as a base to create an even canvas for the eye makeup you’ll be applying.
Now, you’ll apply your two-tone colour. Swipe the lighter shade on the inner corner of your eye and the darker colour on the outer corner of your eye using an eyeshadow brush. It’s important that you leave the centre of your eyelid blank. We suggest using L’Oréal Color Riche Eye Shadow Quad range, because the palettes already contain light and darker shades of the same family.
Lightly brush over your two main colours with a darker shade. The application must be gentle and minimal, so the colour isn’t completely lost. Afterwards, blend with a tapered blending brush until the colours are even and perfectly smoky.
Now for the main event! Take your light-catching highlighter and swipe it over the centre of your eyelid. You’ll need a high intensity highlighter like Maybelline’s Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in a light shade, to create amazing contrast and to really pull off the halo glow.
Next, take the same highlighter and swipe it just below your lash line with the eyeshadow brush. The colour must be parallel in the centre, and in line with the highlighter on the eyelid. This will create the halo glow.
Finally, use your finger to press some highlighter on your tear duct. You can choose to blend it or leave as is to complement the halo-effect on your eyelid.
Finish off the look with a volumising mascara and you’re good to enter the gates of Heaven!
